Crescent Cove

MAKING MOMENTS COUNT FOR KIDS & FAMILIES: The first and only Home in Minnesota and the third in the United States

Crescent Cove offers care and support to children and young adults with a shortened life-expectancy, and their families who love them. The Crescent Cove Respite & Hospice Home for Kids opened May 2018 on Twin Lakes in Brooklyn Center, MN. It is a vibrant and joyful home-away-from home for kids with life-threatening conditions, where each moment is embraced and celebrated. The home is utilized for short breaks of rest, or an option beyond the hospital or home environment for compassionate, end-of-life care. All services and stays provided at Crescent Cove to kids and families are at no out-of-pocket cost thanks to the generosity of donors who make this possible.

Kids and young adults, 0-21 years old, are able to stay in one of six bedrooms for overnight respite and, as needed, a sacred place at the end-of-life. Along with therapy rooms and recreational space, a family suite is available so that families may stay together while enjoying a temporary get-away from the constant demands of care giving. Nursing professionals trained in pediatric palliative care are on-site to provide daily care, meals, pain and symptom control, and Crescent Cove has a network of therapists to engage kids through music, art, or pet therapy, healing touch, spiritual care and hydrotherapy.

Our Priority Area changes every three (3) years; Crescent Cove is our 2021-2024 Priority Area. Click here to view other past MNWT Priority Areas.
